"Farmville" and other Facebook apps have become a scourge worse than meth, crack and lotto scratch off tickets of addiction. Removing friends from any social interaction other than, "Hey have you seen my lost pink cow?" It seems 80% of my facebook friends have been sucked into this
Has Facebook failed as social media by giving us boring, slow moving, pointless yet addictive games like, "Farmville, Yoville, Mafia Wars, ect.... Most of these games like "mafia wars" are just a reskined version of of the same game yet everyone seems to play each of them like it is a full time job. When i sign into FB i usually have 60 to 70 requests for these games by my friends! For alot of them it is the only sign of life on facebook I see.
I like computer games! But ones that give me feedback, or involve skill or problem solving. These games give you none of that, they only give you a virtual cash payout. And some people spend real money on fake money on facebook apps. A true fact as painful as paying to get told you had sex without actually bumping uglies. They are the Thorazine of the game world.
This is plea to my friends, stop this insanity, please.. I am truely interested in what you have to say... I do not need any pink cows, or maifa slum apartments. Do I need to call A&E Intervention for you? I am really amazed at the control these games have over people. So share your feelings, or play with your kids, maybe graze some harmless internet porn but please for the love of God stop sending me Pink Cows!!!!!!!
